A Film for Youth !

Mangrove Island . A Film Directed by Film Maestro Lester James Peiris . Main actor is Ajith Jinadasa who plays the role of Upali Giniwella, a young rebellious youth who travels to a small island to get away from the restrictive society around him.

Upali Giniwella (Ajith Jinadasa) is resentful of his new stepmother (Somalatha Subasinghe) and lashes out by committing harmless acts of mischief around the village.

Upali is punished by his father back home. He becomes more resentful and takes off with his servant boy Jinna (Padmasena Athukorala) to the island dubbed Madol Duwa. After some adventures there, Upali is found by a friend of his father. Upali learns that his father is sick and returns home to ask for forgiveness.
